From the desk of the radio station KC7BYP
I have changed the indoor ceiling antenna to a square switch back (running the length of the room at the wall.
go about 2' with wise then go back) antenna.
Next month In July I am starting work on a two 80m buddy stick dipole that will sit on my open air 2nd floor balcony.
I hope this dipole setup will work better then the indoor ceilingantenna. I also have a 2m/70cm J-Pole antenna mounted
on a stick strapped to free standing shelf.
The apartment complex I live in has loosen up the rules a bit. They still don't allow any outside antennas other then
Dish Network or Direct TV antennas on the roof.
I can now setup any antenna on my balcony as long as it isn't permanently attached to the building
Update as of April/26/2019 the 80m buddy stick dipole didn't work. I guess I am stuck using the internet controlled remote
base. The free prog is at www.remotehams.com
